Dr. Odom is an Orthodontist who has limited his practice to Dental Sleep Medicine.
He is an expert in utilizing appliances that gently and carefully bring the lower jaw and tongue forward
to open the airway. This treatment can effectively relieve
the symptoms of snoring, sleep apnea and CPAP Intolerance.

Sleep Apnea is a chronic, serious, life threatening and life shortening condition that interrupts breathing throughout the night. As a result, the heart and brain are repeatedly deprived of oxygen contributing to a long list of medical conditions including: Hypertension, Heart Failure, Diabetes and Stroke.

Snoring is the universal language of fragmented sleep and frustrated bed partners. It is the poster child for Sleep Apnea.  40-60% of adults who snore may also suffer from sleep apnea, increasing the likelihood of death from these associated medical conditions.

CPAP Intolerance. Continuous Positive Air Pressure is a machine that blows air down the throat to blow open the airway. It is the Gold Standard for treating Obstructive Sleep Apnea. Unfortunately, 50-70% of CPAP users cannot tolerate CPAP. Oral Appliance Therapy is the first line treatment recommended by the American Association of Sleep Medicine for treating  CPAP Intolerance.

Sleep Bruxism is a sleep disorder characterized by clenching or grinding the teeth during sleep. It is an abnormal sleep behavior called a parasomnia, possibly an attempt by the body to move the lower jaw forward in an attempt to open the airway.
